  • There are restrictions or notices on the title which must be complied with or removed.

If matters arise in your sale transaction which require additional work we will inform you of this and confirm to you the amount of any additional costs to be incurred.

Disbursements

Disbursements are costs payable to third parties during your sale transaction for example:

  • Obtaining official copies of the Land Register and title plan of the property and any other title documents from the HM Land Registry.
  • There may be a fee for obtaining a presale pack from the Landlord/Management Company/Managing Agent.

There may be other disbursements payable which we will inform you of once we have all of the information about your transaction.
